Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen, Rauchbier 5.1% Schlenkerla Bamberg Germany
Speaking about true classics.. there you go.. this is one for sure! The mother of all smoked beers that's what this Märzen is for sure.
Smoke / peated is something that also has been done and tried within the new brew world
many times, some succeed but also many failed in the use of it, ending up with beers having
the taste of a ashtray or smoke beeing overdone killing most other flavors.
When.. than stop look and listen cause at Schlenkerla they are the kings of this style, Bamberg
got a long tradition of smoked beers and at Schlenkerla they are the leading masters.
Their Märzen is a dark bottom fermented smokebeer, brewed with the original Schlenkerla
smokemalts, that's right at Scherlenkerla they do their own maltings.
Smoke is very present in both taste and flavor but whell balanced and giving the beer
some delicious flavor, almost like smoked sausage and a leatherish note next to it. In the
background there is also a little caramel sweetness.
Great stuff specialy within the smoked beer style!
